Who screened the Finance Minister?

Celebrity Minister of Finance forged NYSC certificate, HABA Nigeria!!

Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, did not participate in the mandatory one-year national youth service scheme, instead, she forged an exemption certificate many years after graduation.
The NYSC certificate which is a requirement for government and private sector jobs in Nigeria prescribes punishment for anyone who absconds from the scheme or forges its certificates. Section 13 sub-section 5 of the law also criminalizes giving false information or illegally obtaining the agency’s certificate. It provides for up to a three-year jail term for such offenders.
Mrs. Adeosun’s official credentials obtained show that the minister parades a purported NYSC exemption certificate, which was issued in September 2009, granting her exemption from the mandatory service on account of age.
Mrs. Adeosun graduated from the Polytechnic of East London in 1989, at the age of 22. According to her curriculum vitae, Mrs. Adeosun was born in March 1967.
The institution changed the name to the University of East London in 1992. Mrs. Adeosun has her certificate issued in the new name.
Having graduated at 22, it is obligatory for Mrs. Adeosun to participate in the one-year national service, for her to qualify for any job in Nigeria.
However, at the time of her graduation, the young Folakemi Oguntomoju, as she then was, did not return to Nigeria to serve her fatherland.
Upon graduation in 1989, the Applied Economics graduate pursued a fast-paced career in the British public and private sectors.
She first landed a job at British Telecoms but left after a year to join Goodman Jones, an accounting, and investment firm, an audit officer. She served there till 1993.
In 1994, Mrs. Adeosun joined London Underground Company as Internal Audit Manager, before switching to Prism Consulting, a finance firm, where she worked between 1996 until 2000.
In 2000, Mrs Adeosun was hired by PricewaterhouseCoopers, where she worked for two years.
When she eventually returned to Nigeria in 2002, Mrs. Adeosun still did not deem it necessary to participate in the NYSC scheme. She simply accepted a job offer at a private firm, Chapel Hill Denham.
However, ostensibly concerned that she might run into trouble for skipping the mandatory scheme, Mrs Adeosun, sometime in 2009, procured a fake exemption certificate.
The NYSC does not issue an exemption certificate to anyone who, like the minister, graduates before turning 30, top officials of the scheme familiar with the matter asserted.
Mrs. Adeosun’s ‘certificate’ is dated September 9, 2009, and was purportedly signed by Yusuf Bomoi, a former director-general of the corps.
Officials said Mr. Bomoi stepped down from the NYSC in January 2009, and could not have signed any certificate for the corps eight months after. The retired brigadier general passed on in September 2017.
Using that fake certificate, Mrs.  Adeosun went on to clinch high-profile jobs at Quo Vadis Partnerships (managing director), Ogun State Government (commissioner for finance), and Federal Government of Nigeria (minister of finance). Before our very eyes, are the culprits behind the Nigerian situation.
